Due to changes in regulations for human subjects protections and Miami policy regarding what is commonly known as “Continuing Review,” Miami is transitioning to an online annual status report system. Approval will no longer lapse, and protocols will not be automatically closed unless no response is received to two annual requests for a report. Approval letters will no longer include expiration dates. However, the approval letters will include the date the next annual status report is due. It would be wise to have a personnel roster updated and available before beginning the online form. We will be transitioning next year to a system whereby all annual reports are requested and submitted during the summer break.
As has been the practice in the past, the Research Ethics and Integrity program will still accept the annual report Word template submitted by email attachment to email@example.com during this transition phase.
